Specialise in one of our internationally recognised research areas, work with exceptional computing resources equipment and high-calibre staff.
Significant investment has gone into the creation of seven new research priority areas to focus on emerging trends within our rapidly-evolving discipline.
These priority areas have been designed to complement our existing research groups, aiming to provide additional vitality and agility in which we can respond to emerging trends. Our priority areas are:
- Data privacy and cybersecurity
- Distributed and parallel systems
- Human factors technology
- Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
- Social computing
- Text and data mining
- Quantum technologies and engineering
Several staff members take leading roles in local high-performance computing initiatives, which in turn give our students access to exceptional computing resources.
We have a diverse range of research facilities and systems that underpin our cutting-edge research.
Study for a PhD or MPhil research degree with us, specialising in one of our internationally recognised research groups:
